Madria Theia is the Face and Power of Dea Madria, our Divine Celestial Mother God. She, like the Holy Mother, is Brilliant Light. She is the Power of the Supernal Sun. She is Illumination and She illumines. She is all Joy with the promise of Eternal Bliss. Heaven shines through Her; its rays touch us, lightly. She is our Sun and our family’s Sun. She is the Light and Center of our life. She is the Power of Light. She is the Face of Radiance. She is the Divine Prism of the Resplendence of the Mother. She is with us every day and in every way. The charge of Madria Theia, is that we emit joy from our hearts in our every day lives and mindfully strive to live a joy-filled day. When we radiate joy, we become joy.

We are the reflection of the Sun of Dea on Earth.

On Sunnadi, we honor Madria Theia and practice Her Virtues.

Madria Candra is the Face and Power of the Holy Daughter. She is the Reflection of Her Purity and She imparts to us, the Holy Daughter’s Reason. She is the Power of Priestesshood and She is the Mistress of Priestesses. Silver rays fall from Her hands, imbuing the soul of the priestess, the deaconess, the sister, with the secrets of the Mystery, that which is intuited by the feminine heart, but cannot be put into words. The Moonlit magick that is not spells, but Nature and Pure. That which draws us to the Moon and is tied to Water. That which fill us and overflows us, within and without, is that which only our souls can understand. We are Her handmaidens. The charge of Madria Candra is that we always remember, are always mindful of who we are and how we have been marked, in Her service, with every step we tread; with every act we make; and with every word we speak. As priestesses, deaconesses and sisters, we look to Madria Candra as our mentor. In the Priestesshood, we are Her handmaidens who channel the Holy Daughter through liturgy and grace.

We are a reflection of the Moon of Dea on Earth.

On Lunadi, we honor Her and practice Her Virtues.

Madria Rhea is the Face and Power of the Great Mother. She, like the Great Mother, is Dark beyond the light and Light beyond the Darkness. (From our liturgies.) She is a Reflection of Mystery, Mysteria, She Who is the Great Mother. And yet, She is not distant; She is not unapproachable. In fact, She is the closest one, in a way. The Grandmother. The One Who loves you unconditionally and with Whom you feel the most comfortable. She is so Ancient, it is hard to fathom Her in your young eyes and mind, and yet, Her Great Maternal love envelops you and encompasses you. It’s OK that you don’t understand Her; She understands you. Do not fear to approach Her, She Who is the Ancient of Days, the Time before Dawn. Her planet, Saturn, means ‘to sow’. [Derivation from Latin serere (past participle satus) “to sow” is said to be folk-etymology.] She is the Beginning; She is the Gardener; She sows the Seeds of Life, the Sacred Apple Seeds of all the Living. These Seeds take root in the Garden of All Being, the Holy Mother, the Matrix of Life. The Seed is given birth and is enveloped in a Soul by the Holy Daughter. Madria Rhea is the Great Mother’s Face, Her Power. She is our very beginning. She knows us more intimately than we know ourselves. She is not destruction; She is Life. Destruction is a natural part of physical life, but it has no reality in the Realm beyond this realm. Life, though, life is eternal.

We are a reflection of the Saturn of Dea on Earth.

On Foradi, we honor Her and practice Her Virtues.

Prayers to The Great Mother

The Great Mother / Absolute Deity / Dea Matrona / Mysteria / Deam Mysterium

Ground of All Being, Ultimate Source, the Supreme Being, Gnostic Monas, the Great Provider, the abundance of the Cosmos.
She is the original Fountain, the Great Cosmic River, from which all else flows.
She is not so wholly transcendent that She is not also with me as I am in Her. We may describe what She is not and we may also describe what She is, as far as our finite minds are capable.

The LLC Research on Divine Guardian Transport Animals & Moon Goddess

Over the past week, I have done extensive research into the myths related to the Greek-Roman Titanides (after whom The Seven Divine Guardians of The Lady of Light Chantry are named).  I was particularly looking for clues regarding how these Goddesses were thought to (symbolically) travel (on the spiritual plane) from Heaven to Earth.  I also considered the transport animals of other Greek/Roman Goddesses of similar powers/virtues.  Finally, I compared these transport animals to some of those used by Anglo-Saxon Goddesses of similar powers/virtues.
See the following information below:
https://deamatronablog.wordpress.com/seven-divine-guardian-transport-animals/

The LLC Seven Divine Guardian Transport Animals

1st Kyria Thea (Eos-Aurora or Saule-Sol-Sunna, or Beiwi & Rozhanitza)-Lady Vision, VISION BRINGERS [2 flying sun horses or 2 flying sun reindeer],

2nd Kyria Phoebe (Selene-Luna, & Artemis-Diana)-Lady Clarity, ENCHANTMENT BRINGERS [2 flying moon horses, or 2 flying moon bulls-oxen, or 2 flying moon reindeer],

6th Kyria Tethys (Quan Yin)-Lady Grace, WATER DRAGON [1 water swimming/flying dragon],

7th Kyria Rhea (Cybele) Lady Patience, PEACEFUL LION [1 leaping lion]

~~~

In researching the imagery for the Titanide/Divine Guardian, Kyria Phoebe/Lady Clarity, I sought to understand how the various Greek-Roman Moon goddesses (Selene-Luna, Artemis-Diana, Hecate-Hekate, Persephone-Proserpina, and a group of Moon Goddesses known as the Menae/Menai) were connected to Her and to each other and to the moon.

I thought it would help if I created a diagram listing the Maternal Genealogies of all the Greek-Roman Moon Goddesses.  I was amazed by what this diagram revealed.

There were three lineages: one from Kyria Thea (the Moon in Heaven), one from Kyria Phoebe (the Moon on Earth), and one from Kyria Rhea (the Moon in Hell aka the Underworld).  This is exactly how we understand the roles of the Divine Mother, the Divine Daughter and the Divine Dark Mother.

Thoughts about Sai Rhave

Of the Seven Great Janya of the De’anic tradition, the one who has in many ways fascinated me most is black-madonnaSai Rhave the last and conventionally most negative of the group. Sai Rhave (her name comes from the Sanskrit language and is interconnected with the Greek goddess Rhea who in Greek mythology was the wife of Saturn / Uranus. She is the Janya of the consolidation of matter and restrictions of the physical universe. Thus She is associated with darkness and even death the ultimate restriction of physical life. Her role within the sacred year is associated with the reaping of grain at the harvest times of the year which again is associated with death and yet paradoxically life.

Within Deanic thealogy physical death is followed by life in Dea. Thus Life follows Death as Death follows Life. But the primacy belongs to Life which is Dea herself. Sai Rhave is also reflective of the Dark Mother who is Dea in her most unknown transcendent form, prior to being the Creatress of all things. I would refer readers to the following links if they want to get a fuller picture of her nature.http://www.daughtersofshiningharmony.com/introductory/the-seven-great-angels/ and
http://www.mother-god.com/goddess-religion.html

I generally accept the thealogy of the Sai Rhave as understood by the Aristasian / Daughters community. However since I come out of a Judeo-Christian religious background and in many ways think within these modes, I see implications within the nature of Sai Rhave which reflect that background, implications not developed thus far by De’anic thealogy. One of the key concepts of both Judaism and Christianity is the concept of repentance, the turning away from the destructive tendencies of disobedience to God and the return to that God. Repentance (teshuva / the return in Judaism) is of two parts. One of which is expansive in nature as in adding to good works such as aiding the poor or involving oneself in a struggle for justice.The other aspect, however, lays in the restriction of ones appetites and tendencies which have become arrogant, overwhelming and thus destructive. Thus Repentance involves a voluntary suffering that is involved in acts such as fasting and the giving up of harmful activities. This limitation and restriction by its nature envolves suffering. However, ultimately though repentance leads to a better life in Dea / God. Thus it appears to me that Sai Rhave is both the Janya / Angel of Repentance and also the Lady of Sufferings, both those sufferings involved in repentance but also those involuntarily incurred, any form of suffering. She is the suffering which is ultimately involved within all limitation and restriction which at its final end is physical death. However as the Angel who comes us in our suffering she might give us endurance, comfort, and perhaps even joy in that suffering.

However there is another dimension to the nature of Sai Rhave which arises from her connections with suffering and darkness. She is also logically the Janya of mystical states of being. She is the Holy Silence / Darkness which is intimately associated with the mystical experience within many religious traditions. And within these traditions the way of preparation for Divine union is normally prepared by a journey of purgation, repentance, and suffering.

The issue of Her Name? While I have always been attracted to the nature of the Janya, the name of Rhave itself which I initially pronounced as one syllable as in “rave.” has never had much emotional resonance for me. Latter I learned that Rhave was the be pronounced as two syllables as in Ra – vay but still that name seem to me to be flat and colorless. While I have a deep respect for the angelology as it has been developed within the various groups of the Deanic community, I do not believe that the various names by which the various Janya have been known are of divine origin. They like the divine names of most deities have come out of the self understanding of the communities of their worshipers. I am not alone in believing this. Clearly the leadership of the Matronite groups who created the Celtic based names of the Angels / Geniae of the Janite clan have the same point of view.

the_black_madonna_of_czestochowa_postcard-p239667848739349750z85wg_400In stating that the names of divine beings such as Janya or the gods and goddesses of the various religions are not revealed in stone is not to say that they have no meaning, no deep significance, or that they are arbitrary. Historically most of the names of goddesses and gods of most religous traditions of have been expressive of important aspects of the being of those deities. The same is the case with the Sanskrit names given to the Janya by the Aristasian community. For example Sai (Saint) Candre the name of the Janya associated with the Moon is the feminine version of the name of the male deity of the Moon within the Hindu tradition. The name of Sai Mati the Janya of wisdom comes from the Sanskrit word “mati” which itself means “wisdom.”

So what would be an acceptible alternative name for Sai Rhave, the meaning of whose name I have never been able to decipher. Well clearly a valid title for the Janya of restriction and darkness is the Dark or Black One. Please note that blackness or darkness can be a good quality and is not at all associated with evil within many religious traditions. Within Hinduism the supreme dark goddess is Kali. Durga, herself, also has her dark forms which she assumes in her wars with the demonic forces. However Kali with Her grisly necklaces and extended tongue expresses very poorly who I see as the Lady of sufferings and repentance. Within the Greco Egyptian tradition other possibilities exist. Isis in her mourning for Osirus was often entitled the Melanophoros i.e. the Wearer of Black. There was even an ancient order of those who mourned with her whose members were called Melanophoroi, the wearers of black. While Isis was seen as being the Queen of Heaven, She was also Queen of the Netherland, land of the dead. Therefore She can quite legitimately be viewed as the Black One and the Dark One as is the Great Goddess Durga of the Hindu tradition. I also assume that Hecate and some other Goddesses of the Western religious traditions can also be seen as manifesting those aspects of darkness of blackness. From out of the Ancient Greek language many feminine names have developed which express this vision of Blackness and Darkness. Among them are modern names such as Melanie, Melani, Melaina and more which express the root word “melas” which means black or dark. I have chosen Melanae / Melanay as the name in which I address the Janya who is otherwise known of Sai Rhave.

Note. The above short poems were written by myself during the past two years. I recite them regularly as a part of my regular devotions.

This has been a fascinating article.
You have brought out an important virtue of Sai Rhave – Repentance. Something for me to think about on her Saturday. A virtue which is especially concentrated upon during the season/month of Moura.

Sharing information available:

ArchMatrona Georgia of The Lady of Light Chantry wrote about the etymology behind the Aristasian names for the Janyati
SAI RHAVE Sanskrit “Discipline, Severity”
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/deanic_conversations/conversations/messages/2099

Aristasian Information:

It says in the Encyclopaedia that Sai Thame, Sai Sushuri and Sai Rhave together “represent a group whose complex interactions revolve about the principles of order, discipline, harmony, fecundity restriction, mercy and severity.”. This reminded me of the Two Pillars of the Temple of christian (or was it hebrew?) mysticism: mercy (Sai Sushuri) and severity (Sai Rhave). Sai Thame could be seen as that which upholds them, on which the pillars rest. But these are just random and spontaneous thoughts.

The idea of Sai Sushuri and Sai Rhave as the pillars of mercy and severity respectively is one that I have heard before – and in this context, Sai Thame is seen as the central pillar that balances the other two.

Interestingly, this concept of balance is found in relation to each of the non-luminaries among the Great Janyati. The apparent “opposition” between the Path of Love and the Path of Light [Sai Sushuri and Sai Mati], between Concord and Discord (co-operation and competition etc.) [Sai Sushuri and Sai Vikhe] or Mercy and Severity [Sai Sushuri and Sai Rhave].

In each case Sai Sushuri is one of the “terms” of the apparent “opposition” and Sai Thame can be seen, at least in some sense, as the “reconciling” or “balancing” principle.

I think this symbolism may belong a particularly intemorphic perspective since the two intemorphic sexes (in some respects the “yin” and “yang” of intemorphic traditions) belong respectively to Sai Thame [melini] and Sai Sushuri [chelani].

The fascinating thing that you reveal is the each of the non-luminaries can be seen as the “opposite” of Sai Sushuri, except Sai Thame.
Sai Sushuri and Sai Thame are known as sisters and are always in harmony.

The Janati Rosary

Reblogged from  https://deanic.com

The Janati Rosary

All prayers on this blog are suggestions, only. They are not mandatory for Janite members.As inspired by ArchMatrona Georgia E. B. Cobb of Lady of Light Chantry

In Supernal Reality, the Janati may be understood as aspects of Dea in angelic form or as the Seven Feminine Archangels. They are the Seven Powers or Faces of Our Divine Mother God. The Janati have unique names according to each particular Deanic Tradition.

Please note, Jana, in reference to the individual Janati, means Gate or Divine Gate. Of interest: The goddess Diana was known as Di-Jana or Divine Gate.

Abal was the old Welsh word for apple.

 

THE JANATI ROSARY

 The Janati rosary is comprised of seven septads. For all correspondences of the Seven Janati, please see the chapter on the Seven Janati.

With repetition, the Virtues of the Janati will easily be memorized. The Seven Streams of Virtue are a central part of the Janite Deanic religion.

If only one septad a day is desired, the appropriate days have been noted.

Collage of my Pendant idea

1. Great Mother Pendant

in Yew wood (Janya Madria Rhea correspondences)
with artwork collage, I am commissioning pendants from Madria Erin’s source:
https://www.facebook.com/moonscraft/

2. Fora bead in Lapis Lazuli

12mm (33 beads) £8.59 each https://www.beadshopuk.com 26 pence each x 1 = 26 pence

Lapis is Latin for “stone”, Lazuli is derived from the Persian word “lazhuward” and latin word “lazulum” meaning blue or heaven.

Properties – Lapis is said to enhance one’s awareness, insight and intellect. Brings peace and self acceptance.

3. three seed beads in clear rock crystal quartz

8mm (6 beads) £0.99 http://www.charming-beads.co.uk 0.1 1/2 pence each = 99 pence

Its name derives from the Ancient Greek “krustallos” meaning ice because they believed that quartz was ice that never melted because it was formed by the gods.

Properties – Believed to be the most powerful healing and energy amplifier. It absorbs, stores and releases energy and is excellent for unblocking.

4. “septade” 3x beads in Purple Amethyst

10mm (34 beads) £6.99 http://www.charming-beads.co.uk 0.2 pence each x 3 = 6 pence

Also known as “Bishop’s Stone”. Name comes from Greek “a methustos” – not to intoxicate and Ancient Greeks made drinking vessels from Amethyst in the belief it would prevent drunkenness.
Ancient Egyptians wore Amethyst as a protective stone and beads of Amethyst have been found in Anglo Saxon graves in England.

Properties – Believed to be a meditative and calming stone, working in the emotional, spiritual and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience and peace.

5. “septade” 4x beads in Haematite

10mm (43 beads) £2.14 https://www.beadshopuk.com 1/2 pence each x 4 = 2 pence

Haematite gets its name from Latin meaning “blood stone”. In modern times we’re more familiar with polished, silvery gray-black hematite, so the name blood stone seems strange. However, when found naturally, most hematite – an iron oxide ore – is red with rust, so that’s how it got its name.

Properties – Believed to ground or stabilize and for protection. In spiritual work, haematite is an excellent stone to help keep yourself also connected to the Earth plane, as some would say via the silver cord, so that your spiritual learnings and travels can be done safely and things learned can be brought back to daily life more easily.

Bracelet total cost: £16.33

Observing Moura

Observing Moura

From the Matriarch of the Janite Deanic Ekklasia, ArchMadria (Bishop) Pamela.

Moonday/Monday

9 Moura/Feb. 29

~

O, Madria Candra, Guardian of Reflection, Reason and Purity, be with us.

~

For Janites and our sister Ekklesias, Moura is not necessarily a time of ‘giving up’ small pleasures on a temporary basis or attempting ascetic practices. While there are three fast days, our focus is on our Soul Path. It is a time for self-examination and for taking a moment, outside of time, to view our life, in time.

One of the best ways to observe Moura is to take a close look at our daily choices. Which ones lead us closer to Dea? Which ones lead us further away? Every act is a choice and each choice leads us towards Love or away from Love. It either evolves or devolves our souls.

Nicholas Roerich – Mother of the World 1924

Nicholas Roerich - Mother of the World 1924

Moura is also the Season of the  Great Mother; She Who is the Veiled Fora of Faith and the Veiled Origin of Eternity. She is represented by the Janya, Madria Rhaya, who is the Fount of the Living Stream of Steadfastness, Temperance and Self-restraint. While daily, we strive to infuse and radiate the 21 Virtues of the Seven Janati, during this Season, we especially focus on cultivating the Virtues of Madria Rhaya.

A Red Deer doe running in Richmond Park

Deer Running Richmond Park

1) Unless your souls be simple as the running deer, My children, and your hearts, as little children, filled with wonder, how shall ye attain liberation? 2) Let your ways be gentle as the milk-white dove and graceful as the gliding of the swallow. 3) For there are ways and rhythms in the course of life, of day and night, of seasons and the moon, by which all life, all thought, all work are governed. 4) and these movements are the breath of the Divine reflected in the highest spheres and every living thing. 5) All nature is vast and subtle music to the soul. 

7) Honour, in all things, the times and the seasons, keeping fast in times of fast with diligence and care; rejoicing in times of feast with generous outpouring. 8) No tree may blossom out of season, nor any flower greet springtime with austerity, but a child of Dea, lacking inward control is broken from the rhythm. 9) For her shall there be nor warmth nor cold, shall there be neither light nor darkness. 10) Harmonic life is danced within the music of Eternity and the pattern of the dance is wholeness. 11) But without control shall the dance be destroyed; without discipline is the rhythm shattered in an host of discordant fragments.

The Way of Simplicity, vs: 1-5 and 7-11 from the Sacred Myths and Rites of the Madrians.

During this Sacred Season of Moura, let us take a moment, each day, to consciously choose acts, thoughts and words which bring us closer to Dea and which do not lead us away from Her on our Soul Path.

May Our Lady bless you,

Blessed is She.
